Different Types of Outdoor Signs for Your Seattle Business

November 02, 2020

As a Seattle business owner, how do you drive local traffic through your front doors?

The costs of local online advertising are often cost-prohibitive for all but a few big companies. While word of mouth is a powerful form of advertising, it’s similar to putting a message into a bottle and hoping it lands on the shore of a populated city.

This is why outdoor signage is so important—it can help improve your branding and make the local community aware of your presence.

We want to share with you the different types of outdoor signage options that can generate a tremendous amount of ROI for many years to come:

Architectural and Monument Signs

Whether it’s for your professional firm or multi-family housing units, Architectural and Monument Signs are a great way to showcase your business. Much like the Roman and Greek monuments of the past, these types of signs command attention and let people know that they have finally arrived at their intended destination.

At McNamara Signs, we can create a custom-constructed monument sign that’s integrated into the landscape or provide you with a complete suite of interior signage options for your office, apartments, or parking areas. We manufacture our custom signs in-house and have worked on some pretty major projects in the past—no job is too big or small!

Yard Signs

Yard signs aren’t only for garage sales and political candidates—many local Seattle businesses use them with great success to promote flash sales or let the local public know that you’re open for business. They’re lightweight, easy to set up, and are reasonably priced.

Unlike the hand-drawn lawn signs, ours won’t fade in the sun or become runny in the rain thanks to the state-of-the-art inks and printers we use at McNamara Signs. You can also include a QR code or pURL that will allow people to scan the yard sign with their phone and be taken directly to your company website.

Outdoor Banners

When you want to get your marketing message out to the greatest number of people, there’s no better way to do it than with an outdoor banner. Brightly colored, vivid inks help ensure that they will catch the attention of anyone who passes by.

We can create a custom banner for your business that includes a hemmed and grommeted 130oz scrim material, which provides a durable base for computer-cut vinyl lettering. You can also choose from over 70 standard colors for line art and type.

Due to the inclement Seattle weather, our banners can stand up to anything Mother Nature throws at them. If the wind is a concern, we can use a perforated material with thousands of tiny little holes that allow the breeze to pass harmlessly through—yet be completely invisible at a distance.

Window Graphics

Window graphics are a colorful and economical way of displaying your advertising message on the windows of your business. They won’t mar or damage the glass and can quickly and safely be removed by one person.

In addition to the standard colorful window graphics, you can also add a touch of class to the outside windows of your business with our frosted graphics. They look and perform just like frosted glass, while at the same time adding a bit of privacy while still allowing some outside light to shine through.

A-Frame Signs

Also known as A-boards and Sandwich Signs, these sidewalk signs are great for attracting the attention of nearby pedestrians. You can advertise your daily lunch specials or even provide a bit of humor that will call attention to your shop.

We can make them in a wide variety of sizes using one of several sturdy and durable materials such as:

  • PVC plastic
  • Wood
  • Aluminum

They’re easy for a single person to set up and take down and can stand up to the strongest of Puget Sound breezes, rain, and snowstorms. You can opt for a magnetic, chalk, or dry-erase board that will allow you to easily customize your message to your promotion or the season.
